Hey dd, my twin grand daughters were born last Feb 5th (a friday)in the HUGE snow dumping we got here in Annapolis. They suffered TTTS which 20 years ago they would have died. My son and daughter-in-law were at CHOP(Childrens Hospital of Philly) not my other favorite stock for 1 day of tests and what had to done to see they were healthy. 130k bill. The decision was to determine when to take them vs. being in there to long. The larger one was 4.1 and the other was 3.2. The larger one 2 days later (Superbowl Sunday) had to be medvaced to Childrens Hosp in DC to have a section of her colon cut out and then reattached. The smaller one failed her hearing test this week and we had tubes inserted yesterday. Everything else seems Ok for now.
He was born weighing 3 lbs 6 oz, so that's a plus. They routinely deal with 2 lb babies. He's got a headband with tubes pointing into his nostrils to help force air and oxygen to his lungs. Other than the elevated blood pressure, there doesn't appear to be any other complications.
Ed said that he has been busy elsewhere. I assume that this is still the case. Maybe refilling his wine cellar with cheap Bulgarian wine or finally trying to make me happy: inventing drinkable Everclear martini - that will take some time :)
DD is likely camping at pediatric wing - as he should.
